Canada's Trudeau set to lose parliamentary majority after federal elections

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is set to win a second term after preliminary results showed his Liberal Party ahead in federal elections held Oct. 21, though the lead was not enough for him to preserve his majority government.

The governing Liberal Party was leading or elected in about 157 of Canada's 338 electoral districts, with a voting share of more than 33%, according to projections by CBC News, CTV News and Global News. A party needs to win at least 170 seats to form a majority in the Canadian House of Commons, where the Liberals held 177 prior to the elections.

The opposition Conservative Party was in second place with about 122 seats and roughly 34% of the popular voting share. The nationalist Bloc Québécois was leading or elected in 32 electoral districts, followed by the New Democratic Party with over 20 seats. Parties need at least 12 seats to secure official status.

The preliminary results indicate that Trudeau's Liberals may have to reach out to other parties to form a coalition government.

Trudeau, whose campaign had been marred by scandals, pledged to raise the federal minimum wage and earmarked C$9.3 billion in new spending in fiscal 2020-2021, bringing the deficit for that period to C$27.4 billion.

He also vowed to eliminate coal power by 2030.
